Established in 1970, North Seattle College provides learning opportunities for a diverse group of over 14,000 students each year. North is the starting point for many students who transfer to top universities across the country. Strong academic preparation and advising services, small classes, an innovative integrated studies program, broad e-learning options and a variety of partnerships with four-year schools contribute to student success. The College also offers two new Bachelor of Applied Science degrees -  in Application Development and in International Business - and all-in-the-evening Associate of Arts and Associate in Business degree programs.

Successful Transfers & Career Training

While many graduates have continued their studies at such colleges as Dartmouth, Penn State and UC Berkeley, most North students transfer to the University of Washington. In fact, North consistently ranks among the highest of all community colleges in the number of students who are accepted to the University of Washington’s main campus. And North graduates fare well — for several years, a North transfer student has won the prestigous UW President’s Medal for academic excellence.

North also provides outstanding career training in over 60 certificate programs including those in emerging fields such as nanotechnology, sustainable and conventional energy and control technology, and green real estate. In addition, North helps people earn their GEDs, learn English, enhance their basic skills and/or pursue a new skill or personal interest.

Rich Student Life

The College also provides a rich student life. Concerts, lectures, fitness programs, an award-winning literary magazine and diverse student population that includes over 900 international students from 50 countries add depth to students’ experiences. 

Convenient Location

North is located in the Northgate area of Seattle and is conveniently located near the two major north-south highways, Interstate 5 and Highway 99, and is just a short drive to downtown and the University of Washington. Largely residential, the campus neighborhood is near a large shopping district and the city’s popular Greenlake Park. The campus includes environmentally sensitive wetlands which have inspired a college-wide commitment to sustainability.
